The IPKat has been running a poll on the four candidates in the running for the next President of the EPO (mentioned in previous posts here and here). The Administrative Council couldn't decide, so the IPKat decided to leave the poll running for another week. After 282 votes the final results are now in, and are as follows:
Susanne Ås Sivborg (SE): 174 (61%)
Roland Grossenbacher (CH): 40 (14%)
Jesper Kongstad (DK): 36 (12%)
Benoît Battistelli (FR): 32 (11%)
Strangely, the Administrative Council's two favourite candidates (at least according to the IAM blog) are the two least favourite among the IPKat's readers. Apparently nobody has yet ruled themselves out, so there is everything still to play for at the next meeting in December.
For the latest information and rumours, see the IAM blog again here.
